signs to change your mattress

Signs you need to change your mattress soon

After you’ve had your mattress for a few years, you should begin inspecting it for wear and tear. There is no precedented time that you should get rid of your mattress; however, if you have started to notice any changes in your bed’s physical appearance or your body or your body is in pain, it may be time for a new one. Here are some common signs you need to change your mattress.

You have begun waking up with aches and pains

If you wake up with back and neck pain, numbness, stiffness, or more aches than you went to bed with, these could be telltale signs that it’s time to replace your mattress. When your mattress cushion gets worn down, it may create painful pressure points where your body does not have sufficient support.


You wake up with allergies or feel tired

Over time, your mattress can develop allergens like mold, mildew, and dust mites. If you find that you are allergic to any of these irritants, your mattress could cause an allergic reaction. If you are sneezing when you get close to the bed or feeling stuffy when you wake up in the morning, it’s probably time to evaluate your mattress situation. You should consider hypoallergenic materials like wool when you are purchasing a new mattress.

Your mattress has started to sag

If there’s a dent in your mattress, that’s a sign that it is worn. Sagging occurs with almost any mattress material, so yes, if your bed has springs, it can break down and sag. The more profound the sag in your mattress, the more discomfort you’ll likely experience.

Your mattress squeaks or makes noise

Your mattress shouldn’t squeak even if you’re tossing and turning in bed. Spring mattresses can get noisy after sleeping on them for years because springs start to break and lose their hold. When the inner workings of the mattress begin to come loose, consider investing in a new bed.
